Love my mirrors look but wanna see

what the hell is going behind me :-)


Anyone can tell me if this CRG Hindsight Lane Split Billet Bar-End Mirrors are good quality? will they vibrate like the oem mirrors?

Any other alternative?

I need them to fold cause the bike needs to get through a narrow door every day :-)

I've got these mirrors on my Thruxton. Top notch quality. No vibrations.

But you can't see squat

I have CRG Arrows and I can tell you they look great and no vibration. Plus they flip up so when I park in the garage they do not take up any room. Cant say enough about it. Single best mod i made.

I didn't want to spend a mint on mirrors. So in another thread someone suggested these;

They work GREAT! I can see behind me. They have a bit of a "fish eye" to them so you get a bigger view. I like it has different mounting positions. Doesn't look cheap eitherů I'm happy!

I had the cheap ass eBay replica version on the 696. they work just fine to me.
Don't know why you having problems. One of the mirror shook loose but a dab of blue loctite goes a long way.

And thats my point. I already spent a mint on the bike that should have come with better/working mirrors. So I'm not willing to spend a bundle on something that should have worked in the first place...

My 20 buck mirrors work just as well as 200 buck mirrors and they look good. They don't look cheap and as a matter of fact at the last Ducati club ride I had a few people ask me what brand and where I got them...

From what I've gathered on motorcycle mirrors, you can either look good or see good, but not both.
I tried bar ends and got tired of looking at my elbows. Went back to the stalk style and now see even more of my elbows...
